The Small Town Poker Tour a new poker tour dedicated to raising money for charity will offer original episodes of the tour at NATPE Convention January 24-27 at the Mandalay Bay Hotel in Las Vegas.
ÂNATPE seems to be the best place to showcase the Tour and show,Â stated Mark Fracalossi Executive Producer. ÂWe feel the exposure we get will be good and lead to the right placement of the showÂ Fracalossi said.
The Small Town Poker Tour will travel all fifty United States in search of the best amateur player in America, along the way featuring a unique blend of characters that make for some very exciting action.
The Poker Show will be different from the rest, "We put more on the people aspect and feature unique locations." The Tour comes to town everyone who lives in that state is invited out to play, 100% of the money is given to a local charity. All of America will get to vote on the Towns the tour visits. The Small Town Poker Tour is the first Charity Poker Tour to travel the country. The tour works with local charities. When you sign up to play, you pick a charity to play for, and the top three finisher's charities are paid. The top three players are that state's Small Town Poker Tour Champs.
"We want to make this the finest traveling fund raiser in the world," Fracalossi said. Make It Happen Productions of Los Angeles will produce the show. A European Tour is set for the spring of 2005.
"We are going to take poker back to where it all started", Fracalossi said. "Everyone views the shows now with their high stakes, and flashy sets, but the roots of Poker games can be found in every small town in the USA." The show will add a new grass roots look to the nations fastest growing card game Texas Hold'em. "Our goal is to make this a fund raising machine for the towns we visit", Fracalossi said.
